PCV Theory Test Practise

Each test has 100 questions with four possible answers; just choose the one you think is correct. You have 115 minutes to complete the exam. The clock will appear in the bottom right hand corner of your screen. You need to score at least 85 to pass.

If you just want to study and revise, the tests marked with an A contain the same questions but the test is not timed, and the correct answer to each question will be revealed as soon as you answer. You will still receive a score at the end.

At the end of each PCV test you will not only find out your score, but you will also see an explanation of each answer. This will give you the opportunity to work further on any weak areas and to reinforce your knowledge on any particular subject.

The questions in these practise exams are drawn from the DVSA theory test question bank. They are just like the questions you will need to answer when taking the test for real. When you feel ready, the easiest way to book your theory test is online.

In addition to answering multiple choice questions, you will also need to pass the hazard perception test. This involves watching a series of video simulation clips in which you need to identify ‘developing hazards’. When you spot a hazard which is about to affect you, you must click the mouse button; although you need to avoid clicking too many times!. You can see a few examples of these clips here.
